I've, easily, been able to pull the skirt down on my newer dolls. I've been pulling it down to where the shirt ends to make it seem longer. It almost goes to the knees doing that.
I love this outfit. I love that all the pieces are easy to mix with other things (the creamy turtleneck looks great with the Horse Lover pants), and the beret is SOOO cute. The only thing I don't like is the poncho. They're already "out," and AG seems so into following the current trends. Oh well, they'll be back in again in a few years, lol.
I love this one too! There is no way I could get the shawl over 26's head and not fuss over her hair, but it would have looked great on her. Our skirt isn't too short, it is just too tight for a couple of the girls.
I LOVE this outfit right now it is on my Josefina and I think its adorable. Im 17 and if they made this outfit in girls and ladys sizes I just might by it. I love everything about it and although many people seem to agree the skirt is to short i think that its perfect and adorable. then again im a teenager but overall this is probably one of my favorite GOT outfits (even though all the dolls I own are Historical
This is a really great outfit. I haven't had too much trouble with it, but then again the newer dolls are thin so I just pull it down so it looks longer. I wouldn't dare to try and put this on my older and chubbier dolls, because there is no way it would fit. I have to agree that I think the pocho would be better if it had velcro (though due to the material being thin, that wouldn't work). There was one time where I was pulling the shirt down and I pulled the poncho by accident as well and it got streched out a bit. It has appeared to have taken its shape again, but I'm sure with constant use it could easily get stretched out. I really like the color combination that they chose for this set, and as much as I dislike those types of boots, I really like this pair. A+ for the Sightseeing Outfit.
My skirt fits fine. I just got it today as a Christmas present and I adore it! It looks very good on short haired dolls. Kit is wearing it and it is jut TOO cute! The skirt is lined with satin and the flounce is just so... flouncy! The corsage does not come off, but looks wonderful where it is. The shirt is nice, a long sleeved cream shirt. The beret is rather hard to get on, but once it is on, it does not move around too much, and it is SOOOOOOOOOO soft! I just want to park my hand on Kit's head and never move it again! The boots are a little high, they take AGES to get on, but once they are on they are adorable! Pictures soon to come, because I do not feel like leaving my dolls and the computer and going on a posing spree.

This is my favorite JLY outfit...I am having a hard time getting the beret to go on the head. I love it on Josefina and Jess the most. The skirt is short, but everything seems to fit well.. I think the is A+++
I asked in another thread which outfits would look good on Nicki. I was especially concerned about the color.
Guess what- the Sightseeing Outfit ended up being PERFECT for my Inga(FKA Nicki).
The sweater is really cute and works well for her since it is ivory and not pure white. It was supposed to be a turtleneck- but it ended up folding inwards like a crewneck so I kept it like that because I do not like turtlenecks.
The skirt is a bit short- but at least it is stretchy. I like the fact that it is lined. I had to pull it down quite a bit, but it still worked.
The poncho is probably the best part. The color is gorgeous. The crafstmanship is of extremely good quality. The fringe adds an extremely nice touch. And the flower pin is so cute.
The beret seemed odd at first because it does not have the little flap on top that most berets have. I had a hard time putting it on Inga. But the beret gets brownie points from me because Inga is from France and half Walloon/half Russian.
The boots I did not try on because they are not really Inga's style. I think they are too redundant with the ones from the "I like your style" outfit. I like the fact that they velcro on the back. But I am unlikely to use them.
A+ for the sweater and poncho A- for the skirt due to length B+ for the beret Not going to grade the boots (not shown in doll photo below)
The following reviews are from a separate thread that was started when the Sightseeing Outfit was put on sale. That thread has been deleted and its contents are reproduced below for clarity's sake. EofA
I LOVE IT!!! I'm so glad I ordered it while it was on sale! It's BEAUTIFUL!!! & The strappy flats add nice spring/summer touch to the outfit! I took pictures, but I have to download them & then make an album!
I highly recommend this outfit! It's so pretty! So far, Jess is the only one who has worn it since the fifth, but don't worry! As much as she likes the outfit, she's gotta share!
The skirt is a little short, but if you don't put it up to high, it won't look bad!
The poncho is really divine! The little flower on it is removable! (snap) It's easy to re-attach.
The long sleeve shirt is a beautiful creamy color! It helps tie in all the colors!
The Beret (hat) is a nice addition! It fits nicely, & a tad snug(hardly at all), but not impossible to put on. It's only snug so that it doesn't fall off.
Overall rating: A+++++++++++++++++++++++ divine!
I have this outfit too and I simply love it.
The shoes: The only downside to the outfit. I think that they are very divine but I think that they are a bit too hard to get on. The Skirt: Okay, yes it is a bit short but very divine. I think that if you pull it of enough and straighten it down enough, it looks fine. I also like the fact that it is sort of reversible. The Shirt: Very cute, a great accent to the outfit. I like how you can add it to any other outfit and it will look fine, espiecally the Equestrian Outfit and Molly's aviator outfit. The Poncho: I like it! I love how the corsage is removable. I have a puppy who it fits on along with the beret and it is really divine :-) They only real problem with this is that the head stretches out and I know that it has nothing to do with the puppy because her head is smaller than an Ag's head. The Beret: I like the beret, it fits perfectly and I think that it is one of the most satisfying hats that I have ever bought from Ag! It frizzes a bit but it looks natrual. Overall Grade: A
Sightseeing Outfit Grade: A- for cuteness, B for quality/fit.
Pro's: The outfit has lots of mix and match potential and is very divine in person. Con's: The outfit overall runs tight, and the shoes are kind of difficult to get on.
Detailed Review: The shirt is very soft. It is long sleeved and creme-colored which makes it a great mix and match piece. It looks wonderful with a lot of different outfits. As an individual piece it gets an A. The skirt is so adorable. The colors on it are very sweet, however it runs tight and is also kind of short. It's hard to put on PM dolls. I would only give this piece a B+, mostly because it's still divine. The boots are difficult to get on. They are tight. But if you try hard they go on. They are kind of divine but not really my style so I give them a B as well. On the other hand, I love the poncho because it fits all of the dolls easily and is such a divine color. The pin with flower is removable which is a nice feature, but it's so divine I don't know who'd want to remove it. I give the poncho an A. Overall the outfit is nice but not perfect, however I thought it was worth its sale price of $18. I wouldn't pay more than that though.
I recieved my outfit in 2005. I love it!
I love the long sleeve sweater. Cream-off white. It looks nice with the AGP shirt overlapping. I also love the shawl. But my flower pin broke. I also love the skirt. The silkness on the inside and stitching on the outside! The boots are nice, but thin. I think this outfit should have tights.
The shawl that came with ours didn't have a neck hole big enough for some dolls' heads. I didn't want to tear it trying to force it on and so I returned it.

I loved this outfit except for the yellow turtleneck - I just thought the color a little off for the rest of the outfit so I replaced it with a stark white turtleneck and white tights and I absolutely love it now.

I got this last week from Ebay and now I'm wondering why I didn't get this sooner.
My outfit came complete, Haley (above) is just not pictured wearing the beret, but it was there too. I'm not a fan of the poncho or flower, but love everything else. The skirt is a bit short for my taste though, and this outfit would only fit the smaller, newer dolls. Other than that it's great. It's got a lot of mix-and-match potential. There was also a little Travel Planner (not pictured) which was nothing more than a little pamphlet for girls to 'plan' their trips and has a checklist to make sure they have what they need.
I purchased it for my Haley to go traveling in, and it will not disappoint. I give this an A overall.
I love this outfit! It comes with a cream turtleneck, a pink poncho (with detachable flower), a blue/pink plaid flouncy skirt, blue boots, and a blue furry beret...each which can easily be mixed and matched with other outfits.
I really don't have any complaints! My #25 wears this often, especially after AG sold me on both the outfit and the doll after I saw that adorable Parisian scene in the AG catalogue...
